Underdog steelers? No, not that year. Growing up it was 49r’s, steelers, and Seahawks…in that order. After joe Montana and Steve young left/retired I stopped rooting for the 49r’s. Loved hassleback for the Seahawks and warren moon. But the steelers were my number one at that time…who can dispute coach Callahan and the bus…really. But know with good ol’ Pete and Wilson it’s impossible to not root for the Hawks.
All in all those three teams have a special place in my heart. I think I was super lucky to grow up in an era of some of the last known greats. (There were many befor them but few really beat the last ones from my day…I know talking like I’m 90…only in my 30’s) Top it off, players like magic, jorand, Byrd, and the like sports just hasn’t been the same. I only watched on basketball game this year…the last one and it was the best. Baseball, pass…overpaid, overly complain about contracts and ped’s…uggg and don’t get me started about playing 100 games.
